for suffering in the world couldn t care less It s the ones fighting for good who are consumed by remorse David Lagercrantz, a novelist and journalist, was asked to assume responsibility for the continuation of a trilogy of novels that frankly took the publishing industry by storm The books left readers stunned with the marvelous insanity of the writing More importantly Stieg Larsson created a character who is forever immortalized as one of the greatest anti heroes to ever step out of the pages of a book Lisbeth SalanderIt doesn t surprise me that Lagercrantz is a little afraid of her Who isn t His fear might be reflected in the fact that she is a shadowy figure in the book until about halfway through when she answers a call from Mikael Blomkvist Shut up and listen, she said.Ahhh, yes, that s my girl She doesn t look like much, just an androgynous girl with piercings, tattoos, and strange hair She is undersized, but bristles with attitude The outward appearance is not just for showit is bone deep She is blessed cursed with a photographic memory She doesn t have the patience or sympathy for stupidity She has no time for social niceties If you were her friend, you would see her only when she wanted to be seen If you are involved with her sexually, you will find that you are not really involved with her at all But the sexwellis by all accountsfantastic.If you are someone who gets aroused by beating up women or children, you better pray to all that is holy that Salander doesn t find out who you are because you will find yourself with her boot on your throat wondering how this diminutive creature incapacitated you so quickly You ll want to hurt her, but she is capable of not only hurting you physically, but also taking your whole identity away from you Becauseshe is also a hacker A vengeful hacker, but also a prideful hacker When she gets the chance to hack the National Security Agency in Washington, D.C., she goes through their system like buttered bread All hell breaks loose Lagercrantz might have underestimated just how much America would overreact to such a breach of security In reality, Sweden might have found themselves invaded by Marines, tanks, and Apache helicopters as the Americans turned over every stone looking for someone with the hacker handle WASP For the first part of the book, Lagercrantz puts Mikael Blomkvist center stage It would make sense that he identifies with him since they share a similar profession Not that I mind spending time with Mikael Blomkvist, if he were a real person, would give me hope for journalism He is a person obsessed with the truth Other journalists either revere him or hate him He is a target for those that loath himYour uncompromising attitude makes people feel pathetic Your very existence reminds them just how much they ve sold out, and theyou re acclaimed, the punier they themselves appear When it s like that the only way they can fight back is by dragging you down Millennium, the magazine he founded, is in trouble They had to sell out a portion of their ownership to keep the publication afloat, but now those same corporate people who bought them to add some integrity to their own list of titles suddenly want to compromise the integrity of Millennium by addinghuman interest material For me, now that I m one of the owners of the publication I work for, the trials and tribulations of a magazine to keep up subscription levels hit home Any softening of the economy turns subscription renewals into luxuries, not to mention all the competition from free publications online that also erode print subscriptions So Blomkvist is in a funkis going wrong than is going right He is spending most of his time, even the time he is supposed to be sleeping, reading Elizabeth George novels one after another I can relate to that for there is nothing like escaping into the pages of a good book when life becomes TOO BORING, TOO DEPRESSING, TOO REAL.A call from Frans Balder finally gets Mikael reinvigorated Balder is a leading expert on Artificial General Intelligence orSomething with the intelligence of a human being, but the speed and precision of a computerThe plot explodes It doesn t take long for Salander and Blomkvist to realize they are working the same problem from different ends of the stick With her behind the scenes, beyond the law approach to finding out the truth and his unflinching, uncompromising need to expose hypocrisy, the duo form a team that scares everyone from criminal elements, to large corporations, to governments Sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference between those elements There is techno jargon, but Lagercrantz does a great job of explaining everything He also does a fantastic job talking about autism and savant tendencies in socially compromised children I thought it was cool that an autistic child becomes an important plotting device Lagercrantz did not have access to the notes left by Stieg Larsson for continuing the story This probably wasof a blessing than a curse Larsson s, long time girlfriend that term seems so out dating and doesn t quite explain the situation , has been in a legal battle to obtain ownership or rights to Larsson s unpublished works It seems the Swedes, so advanced in so many ways, might be lagging behind in the common law aspect of inheritance I believe that Lagercrantz by using the first three novels as his only source documentation kept himself from being hampered by Larsson in making this novel his own creation I read this book in two days I thought the plot was great I thought the writing was very good, even if it did lack some of the flair that was such a Larsson trademark It is hard to wear a dead man s suit, but I have to say Lagercrantz, even if the jacket was too big in the shoulders or too short in the arms, still managed to make me believe that even as he left the funeral he was leading me back to a new beginning and creating a new life for characters that were relegated to retirement much too early If you wish to seeof my most recent book and movie reviews, visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

I think the family did a good job in choosing this man to start a continuation of what is a wonderful character

    The whole story behind the creation and release of The Girl in the Spider s Web is actually somewhat disgusting Series creator Stieg Larsson unexpectedly died from a heart attack in 2004, a year before the first novel in the Millennium trilogy was to be published In the years that followed, the books enjoyed tremendous, widespread success as Larsson s characters would grow a rabid fan base Unfortunately for readers, the series would end after the publication of the third and final novel Or The whole story behind the creation and release of The Girl in the Spider s Web is actually somewhat disgusting Series creator Stieg Larsson unexpectedly died from a heart attack in 2004, a year before the first novel in the Millennium trilogy was to be published In the years that followed, the books enjoyed tremendous, widespread success as Larsson s characters would grow a rabid fan base Unfortunately for readers, the series would end after the publication of the third and final novel Or would it Despite having written a will years prior to his untimely death, it was not witnessed and having not married his long time partner, his estate wound up in the hands of his estranged father and brother Despite his partner claiming that Stieg would not want his work continued by another author, Larsson s family hired David Lagercrantz, a Swedish journalist and crime writer in his own right, to pick up where Larsson left off.On one hand, it s gross This new novel appears as nothingthan an attempt to capitalize on the success of Steig s work by his alienated family However on the other hand, the duo of Blomkvist and Salander probably do have a lot left in the tank as well as an audience eager to gobble down new stories The only question being, is Lagercrantz the right choice to take on these iconic characters or is The Girl in the Spider s Web nothingthan glorified fan fiction While I certainly wouldn t label it fan fiction, I also wouldn t put it on the same level as Larsson s work although, I did enjoy itthan Hornet s Nest Lagercrantz can appear to write a solid crime novel, but he s missing that meandering style of writing that made the original trilogy special I mean, come on Blomkvist only made three sandwiches I expectedfrom him.My biggest issue is in the lack of Lisbeth It isn t until after the first 100 pages that she s really woven into the storyline and even then, she s mostly used sporadically While she s integral to the central plot, she s mostly spoken of by peripheral characters rather than having her own voice The same issue arose when I was reading The Girl Who Played With Fire, where Lisbeth is off screen for a good chunk of the story, but there ain t no way I m going to compare the explosiveness of her actions in that novel to this one, they re not even in the same league.The incredible success of this novel in terms of sales two hundred thousand copies moved in the first week alone and positive critical reception should surely lead to a follow up, although nothing is currently planned, however money is a powerful motivator

    Despite concerns over whether Stieg Larsson s wishes were being honored by the publication of this book based on reading There Are Things I Want You to Know about Stieg Larsson and Me , I decided to go ahead and try it I loved the character of Lisbeth Salander and thought if it was done well, it might be worth it You don t encounter many characters like her.Unfortunately, I was supremely disappointed, so much so that I can t face going back to the book after making it halfway through the au Despite concerns over whether Stieg Larsson s wishes were being honored by the publication of this book based on reading There Are Things I Want You to Know about Stieg Larsson and Me , I decided to go ahead and try it I loved the character of Lisbeth Salander and thought if it was done well, it might be worth it You don t encounter many characters like her.Unfortunately, I was supremely disappointed, so much so that I can t face going back to the book after making it halfway through the audio First of all, these are not the same characters of Lisbeth and Mikael that I know from the trilogy Lisbeth seems to have reverted to one of two modes sloppy hacker or hungover boxer no depth, no motivation, nothing interesting It could be that we reached the end of her story in the trilogy Mikael is unmotivated too, can t stand to be at work and arriving late to the scene of an important crime that finally happens midway through the book The author spends TOO much time describing things that don t matter an hour I listened to the audio on the current status of Millennium, the news publication that Mikael has worked on the storms, frequent descriptions and Mikael s white fur coat He hasn t bothered to explore the characters themselves He touches on the subjects of autism and the singularity in halfhearted ways that the characters and the reader end up feeling less than inspired And really Artificial intelligence It isn t written about intelligently enough to feel like high stakes This is set in the present day If I wanted a thrilling read about AI and the singularity I would look for it in science fiction, where it is handled with interesting variations and frightening possibilities, NOT in a Swedish crime novel It makes no sense I would be happy if someone came along who convinced me that this book turned a huge corner and I should have kept reading but I doubt that will happen

    3.5 starsI went into this with low expectations given it wasn t written by the author of the previous three books I think it is such a huge undertaking to jump into a beloved series and attempt to duplicate the author s voice While there are definitely some flaws it is a decent thriller and not some horrible attempt at fan fiction.I enjoyed revisiting Blomkvist and Salander s world although the first half of the book really suffers by bouncing around between way too many characters However, i 3.5 starsI went into this with low expectations given it wasn t written by the author of the previous three books I think it is such a huge undertaking to jump into a beloved series and attempt to duplicate the author s voice While there are definitely some flaws it is a decent thriller and not some horrible attempt at fan fiction.I enjoyed revisiting Blomkvist and Salander s world although the first half of the book really suffers by bouncing around between way too many characters However, it s easy to develop an emotional attachment to one of the new characters, an autistic child, and it s really hard not to get caught up in the story I thought for the most part the author captured the general spirit of the series but I never felt like I was getting the full Blomkvist or Salander With Salander in particular, it felt like the author was holding back a little and we were only getting about 85% of the character featured in previous books It felt like Lisbeth lite so to speak, but I guess that ispreferably than the author going too far and turning her into some awful caricature I have mixed feelings about the last few pages of the book, but overall I was satisfied with the author s attempt at continuing the series and will eventually check out the next book

    Stieg Larrson is dead, alas.David Lagercrantz was granted a blessing and a curse A blessing in the sense that he gets to write another Lisbeth and Mikael novel, a series with a worldwide following that will certainly sell and most definitely get a lot of attention.A curse because he takes the stage after a phenomenal opening act, a lamentable position Rumor has it that Larrson s partner was far from pleased about his selection by the literary executor as the writer to take over Readers who di Stieg Larrson is dead, alas.David Lagercrantz was granted a blessing and a curse A blessing in the sense that he gets to write another Lisbeth and Mikael novel, a series with a worldwide following that will certainly sell and most definitely get a lot of attention.A curse because he takes the stage after a phenomenal opening act, a lamentable position Rumor has it that Larrson s partner was far from pleased about his selection by the literary executor as the writer to take over Readers who dislike the book, and some will be relentlessly critical, will blame this new author Those who just don t like the book have an easy excuse.Lagercrantz unenviable task, or golden opportunity, is to craft a new novel that stays true to the vision of Larrson the creator, revisits two of the most compelling characters in modern fiction, spins a crisp, intelligent thriller that will draw in fans and capture the attention of new readers, and does so with a fresh voice, paying homage to Larrson s talent while putting ink on a work that is his.For the most part, he succeeds admirably.The Girl in the Spider s Web, the 2015 novel that takes up where the The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet s Nest 2007 left off, brings back Sweden s most famous journalist and the world s most iconic hacker for another thrilling adventure of exposed crime and wrongs righted Though it lacks the edgy chill of Larrson s methodical delivery, Spider s Web moves forward with verve and style
